Cigars and more for Veterans
RBeckam suggested I start a thread about Texas County Veterans because of all the Vets on this Forum. So here it is. Not sure what say all yet but its a start.
I live in a rural county of Texas and was asked to become the Peer to Peer counsellor/coordinator for Veterans in the county. I agreed and became certified. Great a piece of paper and $40/mo to offset cell phone costs. I also suffer from PTSD so I found I needed to surround myself with others that had a heart for Veterans. We started Erath County Veterans later expanding to Texas County Veterans as we became active in other counties. We are a full 501(c)(3) Corporation which means we're a non political charity. Our Vision is unique in that we are suited to work in the rural counties where there is little to no help for Veterans and their families.
You can find out more about us at www.texascountyveterans.com
I would someday like to see expansion across the country. It only takes 4 committed individuals to setup a Division of TCV and become an immediat 501(c)(3) organization. Contact me if you are interested in finding out more about us or wanting to help.
We whatever is necessary to help a Vet and their families. Our rules are not as stringent as the VA or other organizations. Every Veteran is is evaluated for the signature they placed on the contract and the oath they took.
We don't care where you may fall on the pyramid of needs. We also know that to help a Vet with their emotional problems you must first address the most basic needs.
I will add more as time goes by. Semper Fi.
